WEYMOUTH boss Brian Stock admitted “every game this year is a six-pointer” ahead of the visit of Southend United to the Bob Lucas Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

Stock’s men have lost each of their last six league games and now sit 21st, a point and a place behind the Shrimpers.

Ahead of what is a massive game for both clubs, Weymouth appear to have a good record in games of this type.

The Terras beat Aldershot and King’s Lynn back-to-back in October – both teams below them in the table at the time.

And Stock is confident Weymouth can handle the occasion when Kevin Maher’s Blues come to town.

He told Echosport: “Every game this year is a six-pointer for us.

“Even more when we play the teams around us and we’ve done that quite well, beaten the likes of Aldershot and King’s Lynn and drew with Wealdstone in a short space of time.

“That gave us a little breathing space from the bottom three.

“With a tough run of games and subsequently results it’s been a tough few games to put right.

“We go away to Hungerford, put in a battling display and we back it up with Covid. Eastleigh, we’re not far away from picking up points there.

“We just need to correct one or two things. If we can do that, we’ll stand a better chance of winning games.”

He added: “We do our homework and that’s not just myself, that’ll be Sean (O’Driscoll), Louis (Langdown) and our analyst (Zach Thornton).

“The general consensus is they’re a good side and the league position is a false one for them. Sometimes when you’re down there and the chips are down it’s hard to pick them up.

“I’ve been there myself as a player. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck, maybe one or two positive results and we’re no different.

“A positive result against Southend kick-starts our season again.”

Ben Thomson (groin) misses out and still awaits his 250th appearance for the club.

Weymouth are waiting on paperwork to complete a loan deal for a centre-back and a permanent move for a striker.
